These past years we have been guided, especially, by the following Bible verse: “Do not be conformed to the pattern of this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind so that you may discern what is the will of God – what is good and acceptable and perfect (Romans 12:2).” We pray that this may be a transformational time for the entire Holy Cross School community and that, in pursuing the will of God, in being open to God’s plan for our students, their families, and our teachers, we grow together in our understanding of faith, knowledge, language, and culture throughout the entire school year.
Our Catholic faith is an essential part of the curriculum at Holy Cross School. Students come together at Mass each Friday and the Holy Spirit dwells within each of the classrooms daily. Every morning we begin and end our day with prayer sharing the gospel stories and showing our students how to live as true followers of Christ.
Sacraments and Faith Formation
Students receive the first Sacrament of Reconciliation in second grade before Communion. As a school, students who are able to attend confession do so regularly during the school year. Our 8th grade classes prepare for the Sacrament of Confirmation.
Celebrations and Saints
As Catholics we celebrate many rich feast days on the liturgical calendar especially during the advent season.
Catechesis of the Good Shepherd
This catechetical program is offered to children in PreK-1st grade and it is a reflective-based program of religious formation that helps a child to further develop his/her relationship with God in a developmentally appropriate way. It is rooted in Sacred Scripture, the Liturgy, and the educational philosophy of Maria Montessori.
